If you're an adult student returning to school after a few years away, Bethel will assist you in acclimating to collegiate life again, or for the first time. You might need answers to some common questions, before you decide to apply as a Bethel student.

Who is an adult student?

Undergraduate students are just out of high school (within a few years), usually live on campus, and are part of student life. If you've been working a while, are married, and possibly have a family, you fit the role of an adult learner.

What kind of classes can you take?

We offer degree programs in several areas ranging from Business to education to nursing. Courses are offered on campus, online, or at Southwestern Michigan College in Dowagiac, Mich.

Do you have to start over?

No. Bethel College accepts transfer credit from nationally and regionally accredited institutions. We also offer a Prior Learning Assessment, which confirms what you already know to gain credit toward your degree.

Will my credits transfer?

How long will it take to get my degree?
